Question : My 2 year old male cat has what looks like a swollen upper lip. At first we thought he had a massive overbite, but at closer look it looks to be sore. What could it be and what can we do for him?
Mouth inflammation and ulcers in cats is termed feline stomatitis, characterized by gradually worsened inflammation of the oral mucosal tissues. Feline stomatitis etiology is assumed to be an immune-mediated disease caused by dental disease and viral infections, such as feline herpesvirus and feline calicivirus. Feline stomatitis, although rare, is a very serious and painful disease for cats that can eventual becoming life-threatening if it is left untreated.

Although most people have never heard of it, feline eosinophilic complex is actually a relatively common skin disease that afflicts cats. Technically, eosinophilic granuloma complex refers to three related dermatological diseases: indolent ulcer, feline eosinophilic plaque, and feline eosinophilic granuloma. While each of these has a unique clinical appearance, they all share a characteristic microscopic appearance, as they are made up of eosinophils.
This mysterious disease of cats goes by many names : rodent ulcer, lick ulcer, eosinophilic granuloma disease, eosinophilic complex etc. The less one understands a disease, the more names veterinarians tend to give to them. EGC is probably the leader of the pack in that respect. Its causes remain hard to pin down.
